If you’re anything like me, you’re already planning your first dinner party after life returns to a bit of normalcy. And, no matter what kind of gathering you are dreaming of–whether it be large, small, intimate, or grand–I’ve got your tablescape ideas covered.
Are you more comfortable easing your way back into gatherings? Consider dining alfresco. Dining outdoors will still create an opportunity to gather with loved ones, while also providing plenty of space to social distance comfortably in the open air.
Dining outdoors calls for an easy and effortless tablescape!
Consider a simple centerpiece that speaks to its surroundings. Potted succulents are a great idea to draw attention, and can be enjoyed long after your gathering.
Perhaps you picture a casual-yet-intimate gathering with those you have missed the most! No fuss required at this gathering, just the comfort of good food and great company.
Add an unexpected touch of whimsy by using serving pieces as your vessel for a simple floral arrangement. It will look beautiful and effortless.
This is it! The gathering you have waited for. You’ve envisioned for months this moment to entertain, and you intend on spoiling your guests! Don’t hold back on pulling out all the stops, and your guests will leave with the memory of all the extra effort and details of the evening.
Have fancy silverware? Now is the time to polish it, and put those beautiful pieces to use! Consider your silverware the jewelry of the table. It will add a special sparkle to your tablescape.
Adding layers will create visual interest to your table, and will show your guests how special you want this evening to be. Consider elements like a table runner, chargers, fancy napkins, and beautiful glassware. It’s time to be a little “extra” and add all the things!
No matter which type of dinner party you prefer, I hope you can gather with those you love the most very soon.
